Description

Here you have it all. A stunning contemporary make-over with beaches nearby. It's quality accommodation at an affordable price. Just 15 minutes from Batemans Bay, the property is on a 1000 meter block surrounded by tall coastal forest. Just sit out on the deck with a book or a glass of wine and take it all in.

It's about a 7-minute walk to Cookies Beach for fun with the kids, or otherwise it's a pleasant ten-minute stroll to the northern part of South Durras beach.

Need a break from the kids? They can have their own space downstairs while you enjoy the refinements of the upstairs level. To chill out on a hot day, flick on the reverse cycle air-con and check out the HD TV in the living room.

And for a break from all that relaxation, Batemans Bay, just 15 minutes away, has a good shopping centre, cinema, and some good restaurants looking out on the Clyde estuary.

Location

From the moment you turn off the highway and start driving through the tall coastal forest, you know you have arrived somewhere special - it's the Murramarang National Park. And Durras Lake, on the left as you approach the village, is recognised as one of the few remaining pristine coastal lakes in New South Wales. Walks along the lake's shores give you a chance to experience this area.

For a change of pace, you can explore the more Murramarang Resort, which offers a restaurant, bar and poolside meals, where you can enjoy coffee, a beer or lunch.

The house is located on an elevated 1000 meter block of substantially pristine coastal woodland featuring a canopy of spotted gums and an under-storey dominated by the local burrawangs or cycads.

As Durras is located in a highly sensitive ecological region, there are few signs of development. Water is provided by rainwater tanks, and we employ a septic system and greywater recycling.

This doesn't mean you need to give up your creature comforts, though. With a comprehensive make-over just completed, the property features a stylish and well-equipped kitchen, polished wood floors, an extensive deck overlooking the forest setting, and comfortable beds throughout.

The property

The property is on two levels. You have the option to take the upper level only, or both upper and lower levels. For the sake of your privacy, if you choose to take just the upper level, we will leave the lower level unoccupied for the duration of your stay.

Upper Level
This is the main part of the house and it comprises two generous bedrooms with views out to the surrounding tall coastal forest. The main bedroom has a queen bed, while the second bedroom has two singles. On this level you have a designer kitchen and bathroom, a dining area, and a spacious living area with HD TV and air conditioning. Four sets of sliding doors lead out to a deck which spans the length of the living areas - the ideal place to do some barbecueing or just relax with a book and a glass of wine on one of the banana lounges.

Lower Level
Teenage kids or another couple? Let them have their own space downstairs. This area has separate external access, and it features one bedroom with a double and a single bed, a bathroom/laundry with shower, and separate toilet. A pleasant living room with two comfortable lounges, a TV and DVD player, looks out onto the lower garden.

Accommodation rates
The "Accommodation Rates" section below sets out the pricing for the upper level only. If you would like to take both upper and lower levels, simply add $40 per night to the rates quoted.

During NSW and ACT long weekends we have a three-night minimum stay.

All beds are provided with linen, mattress protectors, high quality doonas and pillows.

Check-in: 2 pm

Check-out: 10 am

Location

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Vacation Rental Located in a bushy paradise not far from the beach, this house is truly excellent in a number of regards: stylish ambience, quality furnishings and fixtures/fittings throughout the house, everything one would need for a particularly comfortable vacation, a great deck to sit on and enjoy the antics of the many and varied birds in the forest surrounding the house and really helpful owners who provide outstanding customer service and assistance if required. The house is on tank water, so if you're one of those people who requires endless & vast showers, this is probably not the place for you ! We will undoubtedly go back, and this time with friends since there is plenty of room. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully relaxing environment We most enjoyed our long weekend at South Durras Beach Escape. The house is well equipped - a well kitted out kitchen, quality appliances, and a great BBQ - but clean and uncluttered. The verendah was the perfect spot to relax and felt like you were amongst the trees. An easy walk to the beach, nearby general store and good playground for younger kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth booking I researched quite a few places before settling on this one, and so glad I did. It is super-close to Cookies Beach (about a 5 min walk for us) which was frequented by kangaroos. The kitchen is fully equipped and very functional and we literally didn't need to bring anything except soap and towels. The owners sent us lots of useful info when we made our booking. Really appreciated their attention to detail on this and the care they take to maintain the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy comfort Very comfortable retreat, high enough to catch the cooling breezes on those days when it was over 35, close to the beach and national park. Really enjoyed our stay and would go again.
